Hi Roger,

I remember a discussion on midrange-l from quite awhile back about the hosts 
file in CA for 95/98 (stored on the local PC). If I remember correctly, the 
file determines the permissions that CA can see on a particular AS/400 and 
which AS/400's it actually knows about as well. 

If you can locate this old thread in the midrange-l archives, to learn how to 
properly delete the file so that it can be rebuilt by logging onto the systemb 
AS/400, it might solve your problem.

HTH

Subject:        Help AS400 network print server

Can someone please point me in towards the right solution?
A customer had the following configuration:
PC - Win95/98
CA/400 V3R2
|
| Twinax
|
AS/400  V3R2M0 (systema)
|
| Frame Relay
|
AS/400 V4R2M0 (systemb)
|
| Frame Relay
|
Perle 494
|
|
Twinax HP LJ III printer
and could print from the PC to an outq on the V3R2M0 (Port in printer 
properties: \\systema\/libr/outq)
After the change the configuration is:
PC - Win95/98
CA/400 V3R2
|
| Twinax
|
Perle 494----Twinax HP LJ III Printer
|
| Frame Relay
|
AS/400 V4R2M0 (systemb)
|
| Frame Relay
|
AS400 V3R2M0 (systema)
Now when I try to setup the printer port (\\systemb\/libr/outq) I get a 
"Network connection does not exist" error on the PC. I have already started the 
routers by signing on to a display session (even to both systems). Library and 
outq exist and a writer is even active. I tried going to the printer 
(\\systemb\prt01) even though the device named outq is not used with the same 
results.
I had this working for one day after the change took place but it has since 
stopped and the system administrators claim nothing has been changed on systemb.
The public authority for the outq and library is *CHANGE.  The host servers 
have been started (it complained about IPX but they don't use that protocol. 
SNA, TCP, ethernet and twinax only).  QSYSWRK and QSERVER subsystems are up.
The AS/400 hasn't been IPL'd for weeks. (I'm trying to talk them into a regular 
schedule of monthly or weekly as well as V4R4M0.)
Thanks to the list members
Roger Vicker, CCP
